The Delaware Office of the State Fire Marshal said two intentionally set fires are under investigation in Sussex County.

The fires damaged two unoccupied dwellings located next to each other in the 32000 block of Oak Orchard Road in Millsboro on May 12 and 13, according to a news release.

The fire marshal’s office said the first fire was reported on May 12, shortly after 4:30 p.m. and the second fire was reported on May 13. The Indian River Volunteer Fire Company quickly extinguished both fires and mutual aid fire companies assisted.

State fire investigators responded to the scene to determine the fires’ origin and cause. The fire marshal’s office said both turned out to be intentionally set fires that were associated with other criminal mischief in the area.

Total damage from the fires is estimated at $200. There were also previous fires at one of the structures on March 17 and April 10 that were both determined to have been intentionally started, according to the fire marshal’s office. Those previous incidents caused an estimated $50,000 in damage.
